Koen Holtkamp: Excerpt from "Loosely Based on Bees"

"Loosely Based on Bees" is a 16 minute apiological sound experiment from Koen Holtkamp of Mountains. Recorded on a fellow bee lover's Philadelphia rooftop, Bees compiles multiple processed field recordings over guitar and synth. At the beginning of the piece, instruments build around the deep drone of the bees. As time goes by, the presence of the bees softens and instruments take the lead, blurring the lines between sounds made from nature and those made by man. Saturated yet intricate, these electronic honey-tones lull the senses as our bodies are lowered deep into the hive. --Ric Leichtung, Altered Zones
